General – Decommissioning
A new offshore partnership DecomMissionBlue was launched at Offshore Energy exhibition & conference in Amsterdam, earlier this week.
The partnership will focus on efficient, fast, and sustainable decommissioning and recycling of offshore installations and large maritime objects.
DecomMissionBlue is facilitated by Amsterdam IJmuiden Offshore Ports (AYOP) and was initiated by AYOP members that represent the entire value chain: BK Ingenieurs, Boskalis Nederland, Building Careers, Koole Contractors/Decom Amsterdam, Mammoet, Port of Amsterdam, Reym, Seafox, Tata Steel and Van Leeuwen Zwanenburg Sloopwerken.
Koole Contractors recently opened a yard behind the new sea locks that facilitates tide-free and time-saving operations. The central position of this facility means DecomMissionBlue can decommission and process all materials within a range of ten miles while keeping emissions and the ecological footprint to a minimum.
DecomMissionBlue creates custom time and cost-efficient decommissioning solutions, coordinated by a single point of contact to take care of the necessary certifications and ensure compliance with the safety and quality requirements which apply to the decommissioning sector.
